The mission of this Chapter is to reinforce the objective of the Society of Professional Fire Protection Engineers. The Chapter will define, develop, and advance the use of engineering best practices; expand the scientific/technical knowledge base; educate the global fire safety community in order to reduce fire risk.


Are you looking to get more involved in the Southern California chapter of SFPE? Come to our events! Our members and visitors always enjoy our monthly meetings. Join one of our planning committees and volunteer your time!

We have a committee for administration, relationships, scholarship, symposium, golf tournament, social media, annual audit, nominations, and the budget!


The Vice President of Membership, Michele Knight Vail, is currently opening a membership drive until May 1, 2021!

Anyone that signs 3 new people up as new chapter members will receive an official SFPE mug.

Anyone that signs 5 new people up will receive an official SFPE short-sleeve Henley shirt.

*NOTE: Tell your friends and coworkers to register themselves on our website. Then, you must provide the new members' email address and month of sign-up to Michele at for verification. Upon verification, your mug or shirt will be mailed to you at a mailing address you provide. If you have any questions about the drive, please let Michele know directly.


We will be pushing the Golf Tournament back this year due to current restrictions on large gatherings. The Golf Committee is working hard to come up with another solution.

We will continue forward this year with virtual meetings. Look for the meeting link in your registration confirmation email.

Thank you,

Steven Dannaway
